Monsoon rains are once again all set to revive over Uttar Pradesh. Last 24 hours have already seen light to moderate rain and thundershowers over many parts of East Uttar Pradesh. Places like Varanasi, Gopalganj, Hamirpur, Hardoi have recorded moderate rains, while light rains were witnessed over Lucknow And Gorakhpur. All thanks to the low-pressure area which is marked over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining areas of North Coastal Odisha.
According to weathermen, the system is now likely to intensify further and move west north-west towards North Chhattisgarh. As a result, rains are likely to intensify further over East Uttar Pradesh, particularly over south eastern parts of the state.
Places like Sonbhadra, Chandoli, Mirzapur, Varanasi, Allahabad, Chitrakoot, Rae Barely, Amethi, Pratapgarh, Banda would see moderate rains with few intense spells during the next 24 hours. Moreover, the axis of monsoon trough is now also likely to shift northwards.
As a result, rains would also cover parts of west and central Uttar Pradesh. Meerut, Bareilly, Rampur, Shahjahanpur, Muzaffarnagar, Lucknow, Kasganj, Bareilly, Kanpur and Badaun could also see light to moderate rains with one or two short spells of intense heavy rains during the next 24 to 48 hours.
However, rains would reduce on August 15 across the state. However, West Uttar Pradesh could once again see some more rains on August 16 and 17.
As on August 13, East Uttar Pradesh is rain deficient by 11% while West Uttar Pradesh is rain deficient by 27%. With these rains in offing, we expect further improvement in the rain deficiency.
